Saints v Celtic, 4/10/2020

Recommended Posts

We lost, but didn't deserve to. Much better team performance, played with passion, won the ref calls with aggressive shouts, celtic never got into a rhythm, just 2 late goals.

Do that every week now please so we can get off the bottom of the table, have to bring that intensity when playing lower opposition.

Can't blame them for trying to go for it but to put so many in box in last minute was a big mistake especially when we have not put a decent ball in the box all season.

Mikey hardly touched the ball after he came on certainly wasn't any help to Tanser as Griping got in the game after that.

A loss is a loss but at least it wasn't humiliation.

Thats what happens when you take a defender off and put on another forward for a minute.

Shame defenders done well until last minute.

2nd goal was meaningless. We had to have a go after losing first goal. Conway should have scored, you cant hold on for a draw against Celtic. It doesnt work.

It very almost worked.

Missing an out and out striker/goalscorer (he said, stating the bleeding obvious)

We effectively played with a seven man midfield and no one up top

If we had held on, it might have been the catalyst for a change in fortunes.  Table doesnt lie unfortunately, but no way are we the worse side in the top flight.

Difference between 11th and 12th in league.

But to put all that effort in then settle for a 0-1 when really we deserved a point.

It was Celtics quality on the bench that won the game, both managers said as much on radio.

Fekin fek, think we well deserved a point from that but same old I suppose. Thought we played pretty well throughout and got in about them more than usual, but typically they score at the death. Personally quite impressed by most of our players today.

Thought were pretty decent. Massive improvement on last season. 5 subs, what a joke.

They took the one clear cut chance that we offered them and at the other end we didn't do the same, Obviously the second came from us chasing for an equaliser. I've said it already this season we cant keep missing chances like that and expect to come away from games with anything. Plenty of positives to take though the work rate all over was exceptional and we defended brilliantly for 90 minutes it makes you question why we don't have that passion and desire every week.  Very bitter pill to swallow but onwards and hopefully upwards. Sadly its my namesake who will be the happier Lennon this evening.

Why do we need five subs, is this Ice hockey?

Basically, didn't watch the game, didn't expect anything, but no at all surprised to lose in the 90th minute.

Someone said it on here many years ago: You play the OF you will mostly come away feeling cheated.

Today no different.

5 class subs compared to our white sub. Don't count Hendry as game was done.

I actually thought we looked pretty tired for last half hour and then they refreshed half their outfield team. It would have been miraculous to get something out of that and then we nearly did.

Because they are professional athletes and cant play twice a week. I might be wrong but it seems only the big teams with money and big squads using the 5 per game. Does nothing to benefit teams like Saints. We cant even fill the bench. Like these team didnt have an advantage already.

The wee clubs had a chance to vote against it. **** knows why they didn't.

Championship voted against it as it would have given Hearts a big advantage.

Sure Callum stated before vote that he was against it so sure Saints would have said "against" but others must have gone with the OF.
